It makes sense to book car hire in Kent, the garden of England, to tour the many delightful parts of this south-eastern county. Whether you’re after a beach break, city pleasures or rural treasures, there’s a holiday in Kent just for you.

Take the hassle out of your trip by arranging Kent car hire. Pack your sense of adventure and see where the open road leads you...

The county of Kent never fails to put smiles on the faces of visitors. Whether you are interested in historic castles, or building castles of sand with the children, holidays in Kent don’t disappoint. However long you’ve got, hire a car and you can plan a trip that suits you and your travelling party.

Canterbury is one of the most popular destinations in Kent, mostly for its magnificent cathedral. The tasty oysters and quaint shops of Whitstable lure tourists to the northern coastline of Kent, where you’ll also find family-friendly resorts such as Herne Bay and Margate.

Rochester, which sits beside the River Medway in the north of Kent, is another beloved tourist hotspot. This pretty town was the home of Charles Dickens, and book lovers will be in page-sniffing heaven in this enclave of literary connections and bulging bookshops.

Over on the south-east coast, the White Cliffs of Dover and the wartime tunnels of Dover Castle provide more diverse ways to spend leisure time in Kent.

It takes around 90 minutes to cross the county of Kent from east to west and around the same time to travel from north to south, so nowhere is too far away, wherever you make your base. Pre-book your car rental to find the best deals in Kent.

You can collect your car from one of many convenient locations in the county, including those in the popular destinations mentioned above and in other areas such as Dartford, Romford, Maidstone, Folkestone, Ashford and Tonbridge. Folkestone in Kent is the home of Eurotunnel le Shuttle, which connects Kent and Calais.
